Sushi specialist Kari Osselton creates hand-crafted miso soup and special combination rolls with yummy ingredients while veteran ships-Captain and wharfinger Ralph Hull hosts a mix of guests from far away places like Calgaria and Wet Vancouver in the communal dining cabin aboard the antique motor-sailing vessel 'Rolano'. We give it a 'Let's Go' rating for the Sushi with kudos for... More

Over 3 visits to visit with Kari and Ralph with family and friends, we couldn't get enough of Kari's sushi and Ralph's personality (ie Old English)! We couldn't have had more fun on ROLANO and can't wait for our next visit. Visiting family all agreed that it was "the highlight of their trip". An excellent value in addition to incredible... More

Being from Vancouver, we've had our fill of sushi places but after trying this place a few days ago we just can't stop talking about it. Highly recommend it for anyone travelling in or near Sooke. Capt. Ralph was absolutely adorable and many kudos to the sushi Chef, Kari. The candied salmon and yam roll is now one of my... More

It is not only the food - excellent sushi - but the great setting and the character of the owner that make eating sushi in the cabin of the Rolano with the stories of Captain Ralph Hull an authentic experience.

The unique setting coupled with unbelievable value & wonderful hosts Captain Ralph & Kari made this a wonderful night out for our families.

Tasty sushi served in an unusual setting, on a converted fishing boat. Fun in a group, as it is one table for 8, so you'll be sitting with others. Owner is chatty and part of the experience. So, not ideal if you're looking for romantic or intimate couple experience, but definitely fun and way out of the ordinary.

Hosts great, food decent, presentation very good, ambiance unique, bill outrageous. With tip cost us $100 for the two of us. I would have expected a maximum of $60 for what we had. Glad we went but will know next time it's only for special occasions.

I am surprised by your mention of price. We have never had a bill for two guests even close to 100.00. We keep all of our order forms. If you have proof of your claim we would love to see it. Sorry you felt it was too expensive but I don't see how you would have spent 100 for 2@... More

Our kids (sushi lovers) took us here and we were not disappointed. Great location - wonderful fresh food and great people. We will revisit often. Don't miss this place that is only open occasionally so check the days.

I took my parents out for dinner to Sushi on the sea. We are long time Sooke residence and have never experienced something like this ever before we were a party of 5 and the restaurant holds up to 8 people so we were on our own. You must try it for yourself , allow Keri to make you her... More
